Fix it in post. There are a lot of things to criticize about WWE and one of their bigger issues seems to be promos. Wrestlers are often given scripted promos where they are unable to say things the way they want. You will see some people getting creative freedom, but either way, you will hear some strange things sneak through. That was the case this week, but now it has been cleaned up.
This week’s edition of Monday Night Raw included a contract signing between Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and Liv Morgan. During the segment, Morgan talked about how Lynch’s contract was the reason her friends were no longer in WWE. The line has been removed from WWE’s YouTube version of the promo. There is nothing to suggest that there is any backstage heat on Morgan for the promo.
It was a heck of a speech. Check out the original version, the edited version and the missing wrestlers:
Opinion: I’m not exactly surprised by the line being edited out, as it probably did rub some people the wrong way, but possibly even worse in WWE’s minds, it made them look bad. There is no secret to the fact that the cuts were controversial and not exactly popular, so I’m kind of curious to see how well this line goes over. Hopefully Morgan doesn’t get in any trouble for it, as it would be a case of shooting the messenger rather than the source.
